Songfacts®:

  • McFadden wrote this song after leaving the group Westlife earlier in 2004. He told a UK tabloid newspaper in July 2004 that the song was a comment on Westlife's hectic schedule: "It's about feeling trapped everywhere I went, from the cars to the hotel rooms. It's only now I have kids that I realize what the important things in life are." >>
